Its time for another letter of the alphabet for the Craft Barns Alpha Challenge, this time is the turn of the letter W with an added twist to include circles in our work. I love a good challenge and at first couldn’t decide whether to go for Web or Weaving, in the end weaving won because I love to play with paper strips!
This time I actually remembered to take some step by step photographs!
To begin with I cut out a circle shape using a circle punch from my journal page:
Next I painted the entire page with black gesso:

Using my stash of offcuts I began weaving the strips through the holes:
Once Id finished weaving I added the dictionary definition so that it was showing through the punched circle hole as you can see on the finished picture below and added a little doodled border using a silver gel pen:
